Pilates Reformer

The Blindspot (2015-Present) star loves to work on the Pilates reformer in order to ensure that her arms and core look great and are kept toned. The fitness expert, Sarah says that this is a great exercising method as a person uses his or her own bodyweight in combination with every exercise. This exercise method also uses muscles from head to toe. It fires up everything from arms to shoulders to glutes to hamstrings and even the core muscles. Pilates is also a fundamental and complete exercise as well as an all-encompassing diligence.

Arm Exercises

The Kyle XY (2006-2009) actress also does a lot of plank exercises. She does side planks with a twist in order to work the obliques and core. Alexander also holds a side plank while moving her hips up and down. This variation helps her to work the side body and arms. She also brings variation in push-ups that includes holding push-up when it’s halfway through. Tricep push-ups are also done regularly by the celebrity.

The Aim

Lewis says that body weight workout for toning up the arms is a great option because it does not add any mass. The Thor (2011) actress is already strong and they are not aiming to bulk her up. Instead, they are targeting to add a little more definition by using body weight work.

Cardio While Filming

When the South Carolina-born actress is filming, her trainer and the owner of XO Cross Over Fitness focuses mainly on cardio exercises. They begin by doing exercise on the reformer, followed by springboard and floor exercises. Then they switch to cardio between sets. For cardio, they focus on mountain climbers, punching bag exercises, twists in the knees and stuff like that which keeps the heart rate up. The exercises they do for keeping the heart rate up leads to burning off more calories which is really good for the film star.

The Workout Routine

The skilled trainer works with the ex-fiancée of Peter Facinelli at least 5 times a week. They are constantly changing the workout routine. Changing the workout regime keeps the pretty actress on her toes.
